Is Sun Lakes a Dementia Friendly Community?

Our congregation is committed to serving our community to the best of our ability. Join us as we host a one-hour information session on how to be a dementia friendly community, at Sun Lakes United Methodist Church on Thursday, June 30, at 1 p.m. in Room 1. You will learn what dementia is, what it is like to live with the disease, the most common types of dementia, and tips for communicating with people who have dementia. Everyone who attends is asked to turn their understanding of dementia into action—either big or small—to help fellow community members living with dementia.

Become a Dementia Friend.

Dementia Friends is a global movement developed in the United Kingdom and is now underway in the United States, changing the way people think, act, and talk about dementia. The goal is to help members in a community understand the five key messages about dementia, how it affects people, and how we each can make a difference in the lives of people living with the disease.

Our staff will have the opportunity to become Dementia Friends so we can help to foster awareness and understanding about this disease, as well as provide resources and support to all in our community. Whether you are a part of our congregation, a Sun Lakes visitor, or a neighborhood resident, we invite you to join us to learn more about this important mission.

RSVPs are required so we have enough seats for all! Call 480-895-8766 or email [email protected]
